Great work life balance

Finance (Current Employee) Boston, MA

ProsGREAT work life balance, if you are looking for a strict 9-5 this is the place. Additionally, the salary is great (for the orlando office) but may be low for Massachusettes residence.

ConsVery Top Heavy, titles are inflated. One may have a Director or VP title but responsibilities can merely be a manager or Sr. manager at another company.

Advice to Senior ManagementAllow the Corporate office to perform as a Corporate office. The "shared service center" in Orlando runs the show.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
